sunshine at the coast and then tonight mostly clear, temperatures going to be just about the same overnight. we'll still see 30s and 40s and then a warming trend in effect. out over the bay we're looking good right now. the numbers just beginning to heat up. 54 degrees in san francisco, 52 in san jose. and 58 degrees now in santa rosa. huge dome of high pressure now off the coastline. this is all going to be sliding eastward and kicking that low out of the way. that means high pressure is going to nestle in over the next few days and we are going to be in the sweet spot toward the middle of this week. near seasonal temperatures for today maybe a couple of degrees above the average but toward the next few days moving well above the average in the afternoon hours, 60s in toward san jose. 59 mountain view. 54 breezy cool in pacifica. 50s and low 60s in toward the east bay. and as you make your way inside the bay today we'll find some sunshine and couple of high clouds and the temperatures in the 50s and the 60s. overnight lows, not going to be as chilly. no freezing temperatures overnight tonight. some 30s and some 40s outside under mostly clear skies.
then as we look out over the next couple of days, we are expecting the temperatures to remain in -- well, looks like the mid-60s in through about the middle of the week. then towards saturday and sunday, some partly cloudy skies and some cooler weather as we head in towards saturday and sunday. that's a look at weather. back to you. in healthwatch, when it comes to breast cancer treatment, less may be more. a new study finds lumpectomies with radiation may actually be a better option than mastectomies if the cancer is caught early enough. a growing number of early stage patients are choosing to have one or both breasts removed but researchers found those women actually had a higher risk of death from conditions like heart disease and so factors like tumor size and family history should be considered in choosing a treatment. still ahead, from chicken wings to chips and dips, some super bowl snacks that will really cost you. calories, that is. we're going to take a look at just how much exercise you're going to need to do if you go feasting on your super sunday coming up.

coming down about $1.49 a bunch. that's also a pretty good value. and imported blueberries are coming in. and for a large kind of blueberries for this price in the wintertime, you really can't beat it. when you buy them, make sure they're dark all the way around, very, very important. you can find them for about 2.49 per pint. that's also a great value. you can eat fresh and stay healthy and save some money. i'm tony tantillo, your fresh grocer. ciao.
